Trip review
India

loved their trip to India

We enjoyed travelling as a family with 2 children (12 and 10) and the variety offered (cultural, nature, mountains, beach, food). We had a busy itinerary that kept both adults and children entertained and interested. We enjoyed interacting with people (the drivers, the local offering tours and cooking demonstrations), we liked the wildlife parks, the shows and visits to temples.

Best parts:
We liked everything! Very happy with the arrangements - everything went smoothly and we felt looked after at all times. When some issues arose (Madurai festival) alternative arrangements were made. The drivers were great; friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating.
Worst parts:
We were a bit disappointed with the backwaters house boat tour. The boat was fitted to a high spec (air conditioned deck) which distracted from the experience (we weren't out in the open). The boat only did a very quick trip and we stayed where we left. We were aware of a wide range of possibilities of tours and boats and perhaps we could have been consulted to a greater degree at the time of organisation.

The reason that we have provided an air conditioned deck in the houseboat is because during the summer time it gets really hot and humid in the backwaters because the water starts to evaporate, it will make you very uncomfortable in the houseboat this is why we have provided an air conditioned deck. The houseboats because of their size have limitations in navigating the narrow canals, if you want to travel through the narrow canals you need to take a canoe ride, I wish that we have discussed these points during the planning time. In the future if you want to organize any trip to India, Sri Lanka, nepal or bhutan please do not hesitate to contact me. Best Regards, PeterSee more
